What is BMP to PNG Converter?
BMP to PNG Converter is a free and online web tool that converts BMP image file format to PNG image file format.
What is BMP?
The BMP file format (also known as “bitmap” or “bitmap image”), is a popular raster graphics image file format for saving image files. The BMP format stores the data of each pixel in the image without any compression. You can think bitmaps as a grid with rows and columns, and every cell contains a specific color. Some BMP files can be compressed using a lossless compression algorithm. The file extension is .bmp.
What is PNG?
PNG is a raster-graphics file format that uses lossless data compression (that is to say that all the information is restored when the file is decompressed). PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics, and was developed as an improved replacement for GIF due to legal considerations. The file extension is .png.
One of the advantages of using PNG is that PNG supports transparency and data is compressed using the lossless compression algorithm LZW.
Why not BMP?
BMP saves every pixel from an image in the file without compression, causing large file sizes.
